A large part of the cytoplasm of the cells consists of components forming cytoskeleton. The constituents of the cytoskeleton in epithelial cells are actin-containing microfilaments, tubulin-containing microtubules and intermediate size filaments. The intermediate filaments are called as cytokeratins (CK). Thus, cytokeratins are a family of many different filamentforming proteins (polypeptides) with specific physicochemical properties and are normal components of epithelial cell cytoskeleton. CK… CONTINUE READING
